Interacting with Notes

Click and hold a note for 1 second to pick it up, then drag the note around to the desired location and click again to drop the note there.

How to add Sticky Notes

Click the top right toolbar icon Pencil+ > Add note

A note will appear floating in front of you. Add your note text and drag it to your desired location in edit mode.

How to change the visual look of Sticky Notes

Click the settings icon for a note

Change innerHTML is the text that appears on the note and can include html tags eg. <img>

Change style using CSS rules, see below for some useful examples including changing the size

Example: notes with no background

Transparent background (great for notes with images)


Example: notes with black background

Black background with white text


Example: notes with a gradient background

Gradient background. Also supports Hex codes for specific colors.

background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom right, red, white);

background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom right, #82b93f, #5ea85e);

Example: notes with a border

Border requires both style and innerHTML settings.

style settings:

width:400px; height:400px; background-color: green;

innerHTML settings:

<div style="width:380px; height:380px; margin:0px; border: 10px solid #000000;"><h1 style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;color:#000000;padding:10px;">This is a note. You can edit this text in edit mode</h1></div>

Example: notes with semi-transparent grey with white text label size


Example: change size of a note

background-color:#ffff6d; font-size:20px; width:800px; height:50px;min-height:50px

How to use UI icons in Sticky Notes and Dialogue

Example: Laser Pointer

<i class="fa fa-bullseye fa-stack-1.5x fa-lg" aria-hidden="true"></i>

Example: Hotspot Marker

<i class="fa fa-map-marker fa-1_5x fa-lg fa-fw fa-stack-1.5x" style="color:007bff;"></i>

A full list of available icons can be found here on the FontAwesome website. You can also get creative with rotating and stacking icons (see )

Adding Images to Sticky Notes

The HTML <img> tag is supported. There are two things you need to add to image tags so they appear in the 3d scene and the popup correctly.

Eg. Change your original image tag

<img height="40" width="139" src="">

To include the following two changes, add crossorigin="anonymous" and prepend your url with which will help avoid CORS loading errors.

<img crossorigin="anonymous" height="40" width="139" src="">

Using Notes as Signs (disabling interaction)

Often Notes can be used as text and signs in spaces as they offer a wide range of CSS styling options. But you don’t want people to interact with them, so a design decision was made to not allow that when sceneryStatic property is set to true.
